I've been busy. Too busy to update?! Very rude, I know. Apologies.
Back in February, I had a piece published on Kill Screen
about Twenty Sided Store
, a pretty awesome gaming store and space in Brooklyn. When visiting some homies down there over the new year, I pretty much demanded we go to this place, and we were lucky that it was open. It was magical! I had to tone down my positive vibes in writing this piece, but god damn I wish this store was up here.
And I can add, as a post-script to the piece, that Twenty Sided Store ran a strong D&D Next campaign at PAX East. So much fun! Our DM Leo was a gentleman and a scholar, and if nothing else, gave us the line: "As we say in Brooklyn, describe your kill." Gold.
Shortly after that, as I alluded to in the previous post, my review of Titanfall went up.
Again, tried not to oversell. And some people think my comparison to True Detective
was not appropriate. Those people are wrong. But dang, even a few months after turning that in, Titanfall
still calls out to me. Which is such a strange feeling, as far as online games go, because they usually just make me anxious.
While playing Titanfall
, when things got too intense, I would unwind with Retro Game Crunch
. Haven't missed the NES so hard in a while, some classy, short, well-crafted games to wrench out some old emotions.
And more recently I had the pleasure of playing Monument Valley while flying to Tampa to visit some friends
. Such a sublime little experience! More zen koans in game form please.
With more to come! Thanks for checkin' out all my overwrought thoughts.
